Trustee’s Reports

Statement of Claim

On May 2, 2014, the Trustee, under the direction of the Estate Inspectors, filed a Statement of Claim in the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta against the previous director, officers and shareholders of the Company, as well as certain non-arms length parties to the Company (the “Estate Action”).

S. 38 Order Application

Mr. Michael Kallis, in his capacity as a creditor of AFC, made an application to Court on February 18, 2015 and was granted an Order to assume conduct of the Estate Action from the Trustee pursuant to Section 38 of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act (the “S.38 Application”).  The relevant documents associated with the S.38 Application can be found below.  For further information please contact Mr. Kallis’ legal counsel, Mr. Micheal A. Loberg, at 403-668-6561 or the Trustee.

Funding of Estate Administration and Litigation

The Estate Inspectors have authorized the Trustee to borrow up to $750,000 from Debentureholders  in order to fund the bankruptcy proceedings and litigation by way of a Subscription Agreement For Funding Notes (the “Funding”).  Debentureholders were issued a personalized letter from the Trustee dated April 8, 2014 (the “Trustee’s Letter”) by way of email in respect of the Funding.  Debentureholders who may not have received the Trustee’s Letter should contact the Trustee.

The documents referred to in the Trustee’s Letter which contain the necessary information to enable Debentureholders to invest in the Funding are as follows:

The deadline to participate in the Funding and deliver funds to the Trustee is April 23, 2014.

Participation in the Funding involves a high level of risk due to, amongst other things, the current bankruptcy of the Company and the inherent uncertainty involved in litigation, and therefore, there is a significant risk that all or a portion of the amount any Debentureholder invests in the Funding will not be repaid, and that no proceeds of any litigation will be paid.

The Cash Store Financial Services Inc.

On April 14, 2014, The Cash Store Financial Services Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the “Cash Store”) sought and obtained an Initial Order under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA”) from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the “Court”) granting a stay of proceedings and certain other relief provided under the CCAA.

(“RTF”) by Order of the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta (the “Receivership Order”).  The Receivership Order provides for a stay of proceedings against RTF.  The Trustee will continue to monitor the receivership proceedings in respect of AFC’s claim against RTF.
